Latest OS Version a Free Masterpiece?

Filed under
BSD

A free Unix-like OS need not be feared as something that isn't accessible or usable on a desktop. At least that's the hope with the latest release of PC-BSD version 1.4.

The release includes a long list of fixes and improvements, with a focus on making the desktop BSD OS easier to set up and use. The official codename for the release is da Vinci, but that doesn't necessarily mean the release is a masterpiece.

PC-BSD is a desktop and user-friendly BSD distribution based on FreeBSD. The previous PC-BSD release, version 1.3, came out at the beginning of the year and was similarly focused on ease of use.
